Hi Racke

I gave the Table Editor a go. Not because I need it, but I appreciate 
all your work.

This suggests that you can edit any DBIC schema, not just an ic6 schema. 
Not sure it's true?
You certainly need a users table with a username and password to be able 
to login.

The password has to be SHA-512. No clear text password support. Or 
perhaps there is a way to cheat this?

I know, I know. Passwords must be encrypted. But for testing, this was a 
bit of an obstacle.

The ui works fine. You can edit or create rows. I could wish for some 
enhancements regarding usability, but I'm not sure they are table editor 
or angular issues. Anyway, it's impressive as a first release, and it works.

The installation missed Dancer::Plugin::Auth::Extensible::Provider::DBIC 
in the requirements list.
